by the supreme court where, if i may speak metaphorically, i believe john roberts' court took out a knife and plunged it into the voting rights act soft underbelly and dragged the dying gasping body across the street on to the steps of the capitol building and left it there with a note to congress saying it would be a shame if this law were to die. the decision in this case, shelby county v. holder is one i believe will go down in history as one of this court's absolute worst. it was an act of supreme judici judicial hubrus and activism. ruled a key provision of the voting rights act unconstitutional and thus in the short term killed off the core of that act. now, whether it can be revived is an open question, one we'll visit in a moment. first, you have to understand what the court did today. but there was a lot of confusion because it was complicated on purpose. i want to just walk through it. section 5 is often referred to as the heart of the voting rights act. it requires what's known as preclearance of any changes to the way elections are run in certain parts of this country. now, wh

the civil war guy. this guy said to my father who are you to tell us what robert e. lee was thinking? the killer angels' is a book that should never have been written. a year after that, a marvelous thing happened to my father. telegram comes to his house congratulations, the killer angels has been awarded the 1975 pulitzer prize for fiction. i don't know if he took that telegram over to the history department at florida state and -- they still were friends, but any author who wins a pulitzer prize has the right to believe his ship has come in. anything he wants to do will be sought after. there will be publishers fighting over his work. his book will become a best seller. this is what happens today. none of that happened to michael shaara. think about 1975, end of the vietnam war. nobody in this country wanted to read a book about generals. was as unpopular subject as you could imagine. my father was a master of bad timing. crushing blow to him was the killer angels' faded away. unless you were in the military, i've talked to some people today who were command staff at leavenworth,
conference. here we are at the eighth year of the roberts court. it is a courts we will be talking about only by way of snapshots from a few cases. it is always difficult to generalize. when can we say about the roberts scored? what might we say about it based on what the judges have done in this recent term. several questions of the kind i suspect might be on your mind. the first is, how conservative is the court? some commentators characterize it in the conservative terms. some would say that it is the most conservative court we have had since the 1930's before the 1937 constitutional revolution. some would say that is something of a character and they point to liberal exceptions, cases such as the case decided this week, the defense of marriage case. most people would think this is a court that is somewhat to the rights of with the warren court was in the 1960's or even the berger and rehnquist court's. the second question is, what is the correlation between the positions of justices and the s whodent's -- president put them there? teddy roosevelt's disappointment in the justice holmes. pr
and parts of six others. chief justice john roberts said the map is based on decades old data and eradicated practices. in five of the covered southern states, he said, african-americans have a higher voter turnout percentage than whites. opponents of the law who helped shelby county, alabama challenge it, hailed the ruling >> we've just elected a black president of the shell bill county board of education over a white incumbent. in a county wide election. >> african-americans are an integral part of southern political life and that's a good thing and that's never going to change. >> but writing for the court's four dissenters, justice ruth bader ginsburg said gutting the law that has helped end voter discrimination is like dloeing away your umbrella in a rainstorm because you are not getting wet. >> that was pete williams reporting from washington. >>> it's a topic that's not sexy, rarely finds a lot of air time and can be you be popular politically, but yesterday, president obama stepped into the debate on climate change and picked a sweltering dale to do it. mopping his brow in the aftern
at all by the lineup on prop 8? chief justice roberts writing for the majority to deny standing. scalia was with him. soto m sotomayor with justice kennedy. >> the court was looking at whether this group of proponents were the proper defendants to defend the measure. and that was a question as you said of standing. when we talk about standing, the lineups are often kind of unusual. because it has to do with access to federal courts rather than these kind of hot button issues on merit. >> conservatives tend to want to limit standing, right? >> often they do. the dissent was written by justin kennedy who made i think a very good point. that is even though the prop 8 sponsors did not get elected by the people and therefore don't represent them in some sense -- i've been arguing for years the prop 8 sponsors lack standing -- we have to find a way to make sure that elected officials don't get to kill initiatives because the initiative device, after all, is supposed to be a check on their authority. so if the government and attorney general can destroy an initiative merely by not defending it
>>> good morning, everybody. i'm thomas roberts. on the supreme court news. the court's 5-4 ruling in shelby county versus holder. free states and municipalities with a history of racial discrimination from having to clear changes in voting procedures from the federal government, effectively ending the practice. the so-called preclearance provision has stopped in nine states. today's decision does not invalidate the preclearance requirement. out right instead, the conservative majority ruled they failed to take account of changing circumstances in the south. i would like to bring in tom goldstein. tom, as we talk about the decision, as we examine it does not make the voting rights act null and void, but it's up to congress to reinterpret what formula is best for the country. >> that's right, one is a traditional lawsuit. but the provision here involves a ruling where you said, the states and counties and localities have to get permission ahead of time. that's a provision of the voting rights act. and you're right that the supreme court effectively kicked this back across the street
formula. the opinion written by chief justice roberts strikes down section four. that's the portion that set the formula to determine if a state or county required preapproval before making any voting changes. this preclearance portion of the act is called section five. that section survives. but it has no impact unless congress figures out a new formula and agrees on it. and with this current congress, the odds of that happening are slim. the justices are back tomorrow for the final day of the term. that means the final two big cases will be decided then, doma and prop 8, same-sex marriage. it's a decision day, so of course we start with nbc news justice correspondent pete williams and scotus blog's tom goldstein. tom, i think that most folks who follow this stuff thought the supreme court would fully knock down affirmative action but uphold sections four and five of the vra because they're something that have been voted democratically on for years. so what do you think these two rulings say about the direction of the court right now? >> i think the court is actually very concerned
roberts court." and how appropriate. so, marcia, what is -- if you step back, is there a big theme for this term? something that really define this is term on the roberts' court? >> i think so, margaret. if i recall in october when the term began i said this would be a term about equality because of the potential for major decisions involving affirmative action, voting rights and same-sex marriage. i think this term will be known for the court's dramatic invalidation of a key section of the voting rights act and for its very significant but incremental step toward same-sex marriage. >> warner: and in both those cases the court either in one case invalidated the defense of marriage act entirely passed by congress and in another pretty much gutted the voting rights act, also passed by congress a couple of times. would you call that an activist court? >> (laughs) "activist" is such a loaded term. i'm very careful about using it. generally a court is considered activist when it strikes down a low that congress enacted and it's considered negatively activist by the people who supported
approach to equality yet to be decided. on monday the roberts court could affirmatively end action in education, and that could happen because of the work of one single man. a 60-something retired-year-old stock broker. the story of how he came to have four cases heard by the supreme court is a remarkable one. it starts back in 1992 when blum, a stock broker living in houston decided to run for congress, a majority minority district. he won the republican primary and went to run on against the african-american democratic incumbent. he was wall uped and lost by 36 points. he decided to sue the district. >> is there any bitterness on your part for having lost the electi election? >> no, because of course texas is not the only state in which something like this is taking place. >> that case known as bush vvera went all the way to supreme court. he won. the supreme court struck down the two texas districts, one majority black and one majority hispanic and ordered texas redraw their boundaries. and then taking a sledge hammer to predeuce racial equality by considering the race of the pe

on john roberts. even in his early days he wrote memos as a white member in order to curtail the voting right's act. today it was mission accomplished. his court and the decision that he wrote undid a law that was written to stifle racism in this country. in response, justice ruth bader-ginsberg wrote a discent. she said because of the decrease, conservatives can argue that the law is unnecessary, and she had harsh criticism for chief justice robert's decision writing . . . attorney general eric holder who has spent much of his term working on voting rights issues also expressed outrage. >> these problems have not been confined to history. they continue to exist. their effects are real. they are up today, not yesterday, and they corrode the foundation of our democracy. >> michael: the law now going to congress for revision, and washington is already gearing up for a fight. the senate has scheduled hearings for july. this battle a lost but the war is far from over. look at the what the five of them gave us today, or i should say took away elections matter folks. i'm
